    It's seems real noticeable to me. Ringers are super loud compared to my 4.

    I thought so but I had Lifeproof for ever as it seems so I wasn't certain

    I thought that too, particularly with the auto correct feedback voice. The actual cell phone clarity seems a little better, too. New Qualcom chip perhaps.

    That's good to know. I always found that a bit annoying about the iPhone4, not loud enough, especially ipod and YouTube videos.

    Seems like each model has improved noticeably. I could hardly hear the radio on the 2g and its gotten better every since.

    I never got any sort of official source on this, but I noticed from the 3G to the 3GS it seemed like all they did was rework the volume so that 50% external speaker volume on the 3GS was equivalent to 100% on the 3G. Sounds which were previously not distorted with the 3G suddenly became distorted, etc. They redesigned the speaker of course when they went to the iPhone 4 and got a much cleaner sound.

    But I have a feeling they did the cheap trick again from the 4 to the 4S—raising volume in software without actually improving the speaker. It kinda hurts my ears and I have to turn it down now.

    yes, I always thought the same, but once I would get used to it, it just felt too low. always very noticeable compared to some Androids on the market.

    You all just made check, I turned on the same song full volume on the Evo and the 4S, the 4S is much louder and clearer.

    I feel the same way about the 4s vs. 3GS. It seams louder but the real test will be Sunday night at work when I fire up Netflix at my office. Had a hard time hearing movies.

    I picked up a 4 from sprint today and it seems to also be louder than my first 4.

    I was getting ready to start the same thread. I was immediately noticeable to me. Glad I'm not the only one that noticed this.

    I thought it was just me, but this is a very welcome change.

    My iPad is even pretty loud. I was playing music one day and my roommate couldn't believe how loud it was.

    I could never use speaker on my iPhone 4 because I could not hear comfortably ... but just used speaker on the 4S and it was crystal clear and PLENTY loud enough. IMHO, the clarity improvement is HUGE as is the volume. (btw I had to use speaker because I refused to take the protective plastic off until I got protection LOL Yeah I am hopeless)

    The only thing I thought wasn't loud was when you choose your Text Tone sounds, it asks if you want to Buy More Tones, the one I purchased is not very loud at all compared to whats on the phone.
